  • 1.

    The first subtraction problem that will use only odd numbers as numerators and have a difference of 3/4 is 1 - ¹/₄

    The first subtraction problem that will use only odd numbers as numerators and have a difference of 3/4 is

    1 - ¹/₄ = ¹/₁ - ¹/₄

    taking the L.C.M which is 4, we have

    = (4 - 1)/4

    = 3/4

    So, the first subtraction problem is 1 - ¹/₄

    2.

    The second subtraction problem that will use only odd numbers as numerators and have a difference of 3/4 is 2¹/₂ - 1³/₄

    The second subtraction problem that will use only odd numbers as numerators and have a difference of 3/4 is

    2¹/₂ - 1³/₄ = ⁵/₂ - ⁷/₄

    taking the L.C.M which is 4, we have

    = (10 - 7)/4

    = 3/4

    So, the second subtraction problem is 2¹/₂ - 1³/₄
